Figure 4: A patient with complete C6 quadraplegia elected for transfers to restore finger flexion and finger extension. Median nerve branches to the pronator teres (two vessel loops) and AIN (overlying blue background) were identified (a). Radial nerve (b) dissection revealed branches to supinator (S), ECRB (E) and finger extensors or PIN (P). Transfers from the pronator teres to AIN (uppermost repair in panel (c) to restore finger flexion and from supinator to PIN to restore finger extension (lower part of panel c) were performed
